Originally released via Ascetic House in 2015, Vereker’s Grace tape owes much to the canon of vintage anti-music, exploring catharsis via a transgression of traditional compositional & technical values. Working with the same thematic concerns of much of the more leftfield additions to the Avian catalogue – in it’s more subdued moments, anxiety & dissafection; in it’s more high energy – pure hysteria – the recording pairs basic synthesis with warped vocals in the same manner as Industrial progenitors Throbbing Gristle and Steven Stapleton (Nurse With Wound).
The reduced palette & crushed production aesthetic creates a powerful immediacy, with a twisted musicality being drawn – at times, kicking and screaming, out of the depths of the mix. Like much of Vereker’s best work on labels like LIES & Berceuse Heroique, elements warp & twist uncomfortably within the tight confines of a reduced dynamic spectrum – creating a dark, heady energy.
scetic House, the predominantly cassette only label, has seen appearances from LA’s Silent Servant, Northern Electronics’ Varg & Avian’s own Shifted – under his Covered In Sand alias
